New Jersey Gay Marriage Bill Scheduled to Fail Thursday

A A

The Jersey gay marriage vote, which had been stalled for weeks, is now scheduled to be held in the state senate on Thursday. There was thought to be a bushel of bills ahead of it, and it had previously been pulled from the state senate agenda for fear of failure, but someone must have done a quick cost-benefit analysis, or owed someone else a favor.

The state senate president Dick Codey's remarks are not encouraging: "We're gonna post the bill and see what happens."

If the bill fails before Chris Christie -- who has pledged to veto it -- comes in as governor on the 19th, some supporters plan to take the issue to the state supreme court.
